today is friday 13... ( not a good day in italy, friday 13 is like bad luck... )
but it seems a not-so-bad day.
I'm fixing a Porshe boxter s, not so easy but is ok. And the car is nice.
About bad luck, i remember that when i was in malaysia i saw a thing in the lift: there isn't the floor 14. In chinese, 14 means bad luck. So you can find 13 floor and 13a floor.
In Italy, bad luck is 13 ( not a lot bad luck ) and 17 ( very very bad luck ).

Country that you go....culture that you find.

Actually, "4" means death in Chinese. So, any number with "4" in it is not good.

In contrast, "4" means good luck to Malay! It means "tepat" (accurate).

So, me and others now can learn from a different culture :-)
